We specialize in lease purchase opportunities in Philadelphia - we did one recently on a $475K new construction home in Pennsport. I am sure that there will be opportunities where you are looking for as this strategy is coming more into focus in lieu of market conditions.

With regard to finding other nice homes with approximately 3,000 square feet, there are many. As for what you consider to be a "good" neighborhood, only you know the answer to that.
My question I have for you is ..if you can afford a home in the $450k to $500k range why would you want to lease one? There would be no benefits for you to do that. Of course, I do not know your situation. I only have your question to go by. If you care to share more details about your situation, please do. If you would rather not give your personal information on a public board, I understand but feel free to send me the information via my email and I would be more than happy to take time with you to give you my professional opinion along with some guidance and to also send you a list of homes that would match your criteria.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
